The transition to the new Children’s Developmental Disability (DD) Services is now complete! With the changeover, as of July 1, 2013, the services of intensive behavioral intervention, developmental therapy, and service coordination for children have been discontinued. They have been replaced with an improved array of services that provide therapy, support, and respite services to help children with developmental disabilities be important, participating members in their families and communities.
As part of the transition process, please note that the website and email addresses have changed to www.childrensDDservices.dhw.idaho.gov, and childrensDDservices@dhw.idaho.gov, respectively. If you are still accessing our site or emailing us from the old links, please update your "favorites” list, address books, or other links or bookmarks accordingly, as the “redesign” web and email addresses will be removed in the coming weeks.
If your family is new to the DD program, we welcome you, and invite you to browse through our newly updated website to answer any questions you may have regarding benefits and services available to you. We have updated our Frequently Asked Questions, and also our Application Packet. Our developmental disability agency and independent provider lists are also updated monthly so that families can have the most current information available regarding providers who are offering needed services in their area.
If you have questions regarding the status of your DD application, please contact the Children’s DD Team member in your region. You may also email any other questions to the DD Services team directly at the link below.
